“Now they burn my venue down. So heart broken. Sorry my brother Tezz and Family,” musician Pius Mayanja aka Pallaso broke the sad news.
By his ‘venue’, Pallaso meant Casablanca Bar in Kabalagala which was gutted by a fire that destroyed properties worth millions Wednesday morning.
This came at a time when the hangout joint was only two days away from officially opening shop to the public and Pallaso was scheduled to be the main performer on the day, Saturday, to usher revelers into a new year.
According to the police, the main building was not affected but the wooden extension of the bar is what burnt down and, of the things destroyed there were: three flat screens, four loud speakers, one base speaker, seven sofa sets, seven fridges, and an uncounted number of expensive liquors among other drinks.
Pallaso’s manager says they had booked the venue for Saturday and now that the show is in balance, they are having talks with the bar’s management to see chart a way forward.
